Still searching for the perfect Christmas gift for your loved one, family member or Secret Santa? We know how crazy the holidays can be, and Christmas shopping can be one of the most time consuming aspects of it. We want to help in any way we can, which is why we offer lots of different gift set options at VICI Beauty School. You don’t even have to wrap them! Here are just a few of our favorites:
A Gift of Vibrant Hair Christmas Gift Set
This beautiful gift set provides the Color Conserve™ system with shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment to protect color by preventing fading. Your friend or family member will love Aveda’s aroma along with the powerful benefits of certified organic lavender, geranium, grapefruit and other pure flower and plant essences. It also includes Light Elements™ smoothing fluid, a styling serum that weightlessly smooths frizz, helps tame flyaways and adds shine and movement as it restores a healthy look and feel to all hair types.
A Gift of Comfort Christmas Gift Set
Give the gift of comfort during the holidays with Aveda’s own comforting aroma, Candrimā™. This certified organic ginger and ginger lily scent is named after “moonlight” in Sanskrit for the lily’s moon-white blossoms. Candrimā™ body care nourishes with a plant oil blend including certified organic sesame and coconut oils to leave skin soft and smooth. It’s the perfect gift set for someone who needs to unwind.
A Gift of Invigoration Gift Set
Breathe deep and experience a complete awakening from body to soul with the invigorating aroma of rosemary and peppermint. This gift set contains Aveda favorites – Rosemary Mint Shampoo, Rosemary Mint Conditioner, and Rosemary Mint Hand and Body Wash. This aroma will awaken the senses using certified organic rosemary and peppermint with other pure flower and plant essences. This is a fantastic gift for moms, teachers and others who need to be wide awake and ready to go in the mornings.
We also love the gift sets because of what they do for women, students and the environment in Nepal. The green paper you’ll find around each gift set is handmade. 90% of Aveda papermakers are women who previously had few options for supporting themselves and their families. Januka Shrestha, a widowed mother, was working a construction job trying to earn enough to send her son to school. Her job involved hard physical labor such as breaking stones into chips. She says papermaking has empowered her to not only provide for her son’s education, but also make more decisions about her household. One in every three Nepali children work herding cattle, farming or making bricks to help support their families. That’s why papermakers take such pride in being able to send their kids to school, with the help of the income they earn from making lokta bark paper. In fact, papermakers’ daughters are often the first generation of girls to achieve secondary educations in their family. The communities who create Aveda’s paper have Certified Wildlife Friendly® status. This certification helps reverse deforestation and maintain 42,000 acres of habitat for Himalayan wildlife and 21 endangered species including the red panda and snow leopard.
If you still need gifts for the people you care about, stop by our beauty school and find the perfect gift set. Not only will your friend or family member love it, but you’ll also be making the world a better place by supporting Aveda’s efforts in Nepal.
